Apple Themed Table from North Carolina

I'm sharing a post from our place in 
North Carolina. September is all about apples
 and that's the theme I went with last 
September for the table during our stay.  
The centerpiece is my rectangular wooden
 bowl filled with wood apples and pinecones. 
The placemats are reversible, plaid on one
side and fruit on the other,
by Longaberger. 
Cherry Plaid placemat side with matching
plaid napkins.
Harvest Fruit side of the placemats.
Ivory Longaberger pottery and ruby glass
bowls are from Old Time Pottery. Hammered
 flatware by Cambridge bought at JCP.
Wooden apple napkin rings gather the napkin.
Ivory pottery tray on a wrought iron stand, 
also by Longaberger hold an assortment of
antique glass pitchers with tin lids and
pottery creamers used to warm syrup at breakfast. 
I remove the lids to warm the syrup in  the microwave.
Apple basket salt and pepper set are thrift store finds.
The tea pot is from Pottery Barn, but I found
 it at Faith Farm Thrift Store. The jar is filled
 with Bigelow's Apple & Spice Herb tea and
I topped it with a scrap of fabric and
 tied it with raffia.
It all sits inside a pottery apple shaped baker. 
 I bought it at a Montana craft fair and use it 
when I make apple cobbler.
There's even a recipe printed on the bottom.
Recipe HERE.
When I'm not using it, it hangs from a leather
strap on a wall hook by the top of the fridge.
Decorative storage.

Getting in the mood for FALL!
